Animal welfare is our passion
Here at Medivet, we know we can make a real difference to the lives of animals in need – that’s why we support a number of animal charities that are dedicated to improving the health and welfare of animals so they can achieve more for the causes they serve. Here are some of the charities that we regularly support.
Medivet supports Cats Protection, the UK’s leading feline welfare charity. Cats Protection’s vision is a world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs. They never put a healthy cat to sleep and will ensure that every cat in their care is warm, fed and loved until a loving new home is found for them. Every year they help around 200,000 cats and kittens through their network of over 250 volunteer-run branches and 32 centres. At Medivet we are keen to help spread awareness of their work, promote cat adoption and support their campaigns throughout the year.
Dogs Trust aims to bring about the day when all dogs can enjoy a happy life, free from the threat of unnecessary destruction. They are the UK’s largest dog welfare charity and they care for over 17,000 dogs each year through its network of 20 rehoming centres in the UK, and one in Dublin. We currently support Dogs Trust by taking part in their subsidised neutering and microchipping scheme, which offers vouchers to those living in Greater London that are in receipt of means-tested benefits and if their dog is a listed breed.
The RSPCA were the first to introduce a law to protect animals. They work hard to ensure that all animals can live a life free from pain and suffering. Through their campaigns, they raise standards of care and awareness of issues for the animals who have no voice.
Every hour, another person in the UK goes blind and when someone loses their sight, the charity Guide Dogs is there to make sure they don’t lose their freedom as well. Almost two million people in the UK are living with sight loss and by 2050, there could be nearly four million. Guide Dogs relies on donations to continue its life-changing work, with every pound raised making a difference to people in the UK living with sight loss.
Helping to turn breaking hearts into beating hearts. PDSA is the UK’s leading veterinary charity, and is dedicated to improving pet wellbeing in three very special ways – by educating owners, preventing disease and carrying out life-saving operations.
